A Miscellaneous Post

I read Dawn's post yesterday and was looking through pictures to post a few of my yard last summer. I know I have tons but they aren't digital and since I don't have a scanner (it's on my wish list), can't share them yet. I really would like a scanner; it would come in so handy.

Anyway, I did find one picture that I especially love of my granddaughter reading a story to my dingbat dog, Zoe. Now bear in mind, Zoe is a typical terrier mix - jumps around all over the place, submissive tinkles when I approach her (she is getting better though) and will barley listen to me. However, she adores Alissa and will do anything that child tells her to do. Alissa loves to have Zoe with her and tries to dress her up with necklaces and capes frequently. Last summer they were both on the front porch and I looked out to check on them and saw Alissa reading to Zoe, with Zoe quite content to listen. It's one of my favorite pictures.

I hope you all have a great day today!

That is such a SWEET picture! It could be the poster picture for some sort of reading program! Is there someone to contact about that? Just too cute!

Aw, I love this picture! My male Shepherd Jake is a therapy dog. We retired him a year ago. We participated in the reading to Rover program with him at our local libraries for several years. That is where we take him in to the reading room, and a child that has difficulty reading out loud in front of his/her classmates, can build their confidence reading to dogs.

Your picture is just precious!

Thanks so much for stopping by, owning a tenacious terrier can be a pain, but can also be the constant laughs in ones world...the picture of the two on the swing is priceless and looks like it came right out of Country Living magazine...also cute shot of a pooped papa too!

Have a great weekend!
